I have the h100, and the h80, and custom loop and love the custom loop..then you can route the tubing to how you want biggrin.gif

best way to go!

Its actually really simple to make them into cast resin pieces. The molds can be made from making your own silicone rubber kits. Then once the mold is made, the resin can be cast! Once dried they feel and act like ABS plastic. They can be cast in ANY color from opaque and transparent. Hmmm... Not a bad idea now thumb.gif

EDIT: Doing some thought making (who knew I was capable!), They can not only be cast in a variety of colors, but can be cast heavier or lighter depending on your demands. I thought you may want to check it out HERE as I have some ideas now to start casting my own. If you want me to do it for you I can as I have done this before but casting Lego Star Wars helmets biggrin.gif


before you go through all that trouble, where exactly does the stability issue come from? the quality of the material? the form of the legs itself? the way it connects to the metal?

The issue is the material used in the original feets (and handles). It is no problem for users with standard components since these builds will weight "x"-kilos wich the feets are designed for. But when you add watercooling radiator, water, blocks, custom parts etc. the extra kilos make the whole case wobble from lightest touch of it.

Traditional feet would also mean the case doesn't slide across the desk when trying to plug something into USB =)

Yeah it's just the cpu, and I'd like to not spend more than $150 on it. I'll look into it more, as it looks like it should cost too much more (hopefully!)
Any recommended sites to buy from?

FrozenCPU.com and performance-pcs.com are 2 good sites to order from thumb.gif

As euf0ria stated, the weight comes from adding the extra components such as a water cooling system. The mold is made from a silicone rubber that flexes so once you created the cast resin, its hardens like a ABS plastic, then you can easily remove it from the mold once cured. The form of the legs takes on the exact same shape, simply because this is a mold you are making! Now mind you, you can customize the mold before creating the cast resin to take the shape you want. When you mold the piece, you will also want to mold how it attaches to the frame. Usually these kinds of molds are 2 pieces of the silicone rubber so you can cast exactly what you need! The quality itself is superb as it hardens, it becomes real stable. There are other compounds you can add to the cast resin to give it a heavier feel, which in turn can also make it even more durable. Computers will simply just sit there for the most part, but if you take it out to LAN parties and such, you will want to take care not to slam it down like any other PC as plastic does tend to break if no care is taken wink.gif

I hope this helps in any way!
EDIT: before the resin is cast into your mold, you can add pieces of rubber so as it wont slide across the desk thumb.gif

Wait a minute, why use a low profile cooler in a case with enough room for a D14?

I still love your cables though thumb.gif

P.S. Welcome to OCN, if you get a chance fill out your rig in the rigbuilder
